Description: It is a mandate for post-secondary institutions in
Kentucky to prepare our citizens for success in the
global economy. In recent years, the Hite Art Institute
sought to provide this critical competitive edge by
supporting students and faculty travel to engage far
beyond the University of Louisville campus. It has
sought to promote the understanding of diverse
communities, societies and cultures and to participate
in a global dialogue through field trips for research,
presentation and other scholarly and artistic activities
such as study or exhibition.
This search for knowledge and inspiration stimulates
and deepens both academic learning and professional
contribution. Travel experiences prompt fascinating
new visions and perspectives about natural,
sociological and cultural environments, ideas and
Hite Art Institute faculty and students
share travel experiences they have found provocative,
inspiring, challenging or enlightening through
photographs, videos, and other media from recent Hite sponsored
travel for an exhibition in the Belknap Gallery during
the upcoming Photo Biennial.

Description: In conjunction with her exhibition in Schneider Hall Galleries, Charlotte Bracegirdle will present a lecture in Chao Auditorium. Bracegirdle's small paintings depict direct scenes from Old Master paintings. She paints on found images, old postcards or book illustrations. Devoid of their central visual element, the paintings seek to echo the subtle traces that we leave behind. Bracegirdle explains, ‘When a person no longer occupies a space everything appears different, but visually nothing is altered. Everything looks, smells and feels, as it was when that person was there. The pictures become empty stages, deserted and uncanny – left only with hints of past activity.’ The artist completed an MA at the Royal College of Art in 2006, after a BA in Fine Art from Southampton Institute. Bracegirdle was the Beck’s Canvas winner in 2008, was awarded the Davis Langdon Award Exhibition and was shortlisted for Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2007 and Young Masters Art Prize in 2009.
The artist has exhibited internationally with The Cynthia Corbett Gallery, London.

Description: Featuring Reverberation: Echo Press Prints, refreshments, and glass demonstrations by Hite Art Institute students. Echo Press opened in 1980 and closed in 1996. During those sixteen years it created an impressive body of work that influenced how print publishers approached the collaborative process. Its example continues to reverberate today, just like resonance its name implies. The Hite Art Institute received a gift of twenty-two important impressions from the overall Echo portfolio for its collection earlier this year. The show, selected from this gift as well as earlier gifts and purchases of Echo Press editions, will highlight the work of Steven Sorman and David Shapiro as well as Mark Luyten, Robin Winters, Debra Kass, Georgia Marsh, and Rudy Pozzatti.

Description: An exhibition featuring candidates for the MA degree in Studio Art from the Hite Art Institute. Brandon Dyer will present a collection of work representing over two years of creating original narrative prints that tell a moral.

She writes "I believe that, like the clothes, we can all be remade into something useful and beautiful again." Deborah Levine is an artist and a knitter. She seeks to "find the best use for my materials, one that takes advantage of their characteristics while not forcing them to do something they cannot do."
